  1. Ranking the best 'core fives' in the majors

    David Schoenfield

    Are star players important? You're an idiot, Schoenfield. Of course they're important. Go back to your day job. OK, maybe there's a better way to rephrase that question. Which team has the best five core players? And is that a good indicator fo...

    David Schoenfield

    What are wishing for under your Christmas tree this year? Here are Christmas wishes across the major leagues: AL East Baltimore Orioles -- A healthy Manny Machado for Opening Day. A repeat season from Chris Davis. The old Nick Markakis. A close...

  3. Fascination Factor: Ranking all 30 teams

    David Schoenfield

    The Washington Nationals were supposed to be the best team in baseball, a team that could win 100 games and maybe blow out the rest of the National League. But, you know, that would have been kind of boring, just doing what everyone expected. The fac...

  4. Don't blame Mattingly: Blame the Dodgers

    David Schoenfield

    Maybe Don Mattingly is a good manager. Maybe he's a bad manager. Maybe, like his mentor Joe Torre, he's just four jobs away from the job that will turn him into a Hall of Famer. (The headline in the New York Daily News when the Yankees hired Torre: "...

  5. Write it down: NL final standings

    David Schoenfield

    OK, here are my final AL standings. Here are the NL standings. Yes, we can all laugh at this at the end of the season. FYI: All runs scored and allowed totals add up, as do wins and losses. For wins and losses, I merely took each team's projected run...

  6. Underrated Brewers rotation will surprise

    David Schoenfield

    After the Milwaukee Brewers won 96 games and reached the NLCS in 2011, not a lot people predicted they would make the playoffs last season, primarily because they had lost first baseman Prince Fielder. I wrote before the season that the Brewers' o...

  7. Brewers stay hot, Pirates just about done

    David Schoenfield

    The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 in a crucial game for positioning in the race for the second wild-card spot in the National League. Random thoughts follow. 1. To be fair, the Pirates played until 1:28 a.m. on Tuesday in Chica...

  8. Brewers making wild-card race extra fun

    David Schoenfield

    The second wild card is a goofy, ridiculous idea that goes against everything baseball history stands for: That the regular season is the ultimate test of a team's ability, strength and toughness. To get to the playoffs, you have to prove yourself ov...

  9. Brewers blame problems on bullpen coach

    David Schoenfield

    The dumbest move of the offseason was when the Milwaukee Brewers offered arbitration to relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez. The Brewers simply misread the market; they had expected Rodriguez to sign elsewhere, regaining the closer role he held with t...

  10. Rickie Weeks has worst at-bat of season

    David Schoenfield

    Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is turning into this year's version of Adam Dunn -- a good player having a historically awful season. He's batting .158/.285/.289 and has struck out 57 times in 179 plate appearances. While he's certainly...

  11. Over/under: Wins for Brewers

    David Schoenfield

    Our final over/under poll: the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers went all-in for Prince Fielder's final season in Milwaukee and came up two wins short of the World Series. Behind MVP Ryan Braun and Fielder's 38 home runs, the Brewers ranked fifth in ...

  12. You can go from losing record to playoffs

    David Schoenfield

    You still hear the same complaints: The rich teams win all the time; the NFL is more unpredictable; once a loser, always a loser; my team has no chance. Since 2006, 12 teams have made the playoffs that had a losing record the previous season. That...

  13. Frantic finish: Brewers win thriller

    David Schoenfield

    Wait ... we still have two rounds of postseason baseball to go? The Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers gave us a game to remember Friday, the first extra-inning, sudden-death game in the playoffs since Aaron Boone's home run won the 2003 A...

  14. D-backs slug their way back to Milwaukee

    David Schoenfield

    Now we know why the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks played all-out down the stretch to secure home-field advantage for the first round, which the Brewers finally clinched on the final day of the season. These teams play like the 1927 Yanke...

  15. Gallardo, Gibson's odd moves swing opener

    David Schoenfield

    In the top of the sixth inning, the sun and shadows from the window panels at Miller Park started creeping between the pitcher's mound and home plate. Considering the way Yovani Gallardo was dealing, that's the last thing the Arizona Diamondbacks ...

  16. How are playoff rotations shaping up?

    David Schoenfield

    Some managers may be waiting to see who their first-round opponent will be (the No. 2 seeds in both leagues are still up for grabs), but here's my best guess on how the rotations will line up. Remember, the format is a little different this year, as ...
